If you are looking for inspiration to up your sketching game, here are a couple of suggestions worth trying.
A few weeks ago, spoonflower.com announced their second-annual #doodleadayJan challenge with daily doodling prompts. Anyone can participate. Keep in mind, this is not urban sketching, rather a way to practice sketching on a daily basis. Post your doodle on Instagram and tag it with @spoonflower and @ellolovey with #DoodleADayJanELSF. Special prizes will be awarded at the end of the month. Visit www.spoonflower.com for more details.
Last year, during the first lockdown, Urban Sketchers launched USkTalks on Instagram. It was a wonderful way to connect to other Urban Sketchers around the world. On January 3rd, they launched their second season. This time, it’s on YouTube. It’s a live broadcast at 5 a.m. HST every Sunday.
It’s fun to sketch during the show.
If 5 a.m. is too early for you night owls, you can watch the replay anytime.
Every episode offers sketch challenges. These are fun. You can participate by posting your sketch on Instagram with #usktalkschallenge.
Save the date!
Our next event will be Saturday, January 23rd. More info will be posted shortly.
